From the Ne Timeas restaurant group (behind Flour + Water, Cafe Du Nord, Aaxte), Central Kitchen serves seasonal Californian fare made with local ingredients & modern techniques. Chef Thomas McNaughton creates a daily-changing menu with dishes like sunchoke and pine nut hummus, halibut crudo in a yuzu kosho vinaigrette and grilled Wagyu bavette steak in sake jus. Wines focus on organic producers from France, Italy, California, Spain and Oregon.
